The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. Through its ongoing programs, The Moth has presented more than three thousand stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. The Moth podcast is downloaded more than 15 million times a year, and the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour (Saturdays at 10pm on KQED 88.5 FM), produced by Jay Allison and presented by PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, airs weekly on radio stations nationwide.
The Moth Mainstage is the flagship program and features stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, newsmakers and news breakers, and everyday heroes (and even a few reformed villains!). Each show features five storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth's directors. After the show, audience members and storytellers continue swapping stories over dinner and drinks.
